Publisher's Summary

After the collapse of civilization, when the social fabric of America has come apart in bloody rags, when every man's hand is raised against another, and only the strong survive. "Jeebee" Walther was a scientist, a student of human behavior, who saw the Collapse of the world economy coming, but could do nothing to stop it. Now he must make his way across a violent and lawless America, in search of a refuge where he can keep the spark of knowledge alive in the coming Dark Age. He could never make it on his own, but he has found a companion who can teach him how to survive on instinct and will. Jeebee has been adopted by a great Gray Wolf.

Decent idea that gets bogged down quickly.

I now know more about wolves than I ever really wanted to. Don't get me wrong, the story has its moments but those moments were usually embedded among long monologs from the main character constantly speculating about the wolf's motivation for doing ANYTHING. It became very distracting through in a 19 hour listen, and gave me the impression it was mostly filler as it had little bearing on the plot. Mr. Collin's style was fitting for the main character, but his idiosyncratic way of narrating always made everyone seem agitated and out of breath. I finished the book not really caring about the characters or whether there would be a sequel.

Hated the female. Disliked the narration.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better character decisions and the lead female being less of a selfish bitch.

What will your next listen be?

Fear the Future: The Fear Saga, Book 3 (not that it has much integrity but it is easy listening)

How could the performance have been better?

Less annoying accent.

What character would you cut from Wolf and Iron?

Not enough characters to cut any out.

Any additional comments?

As far as post-apocalyptic goes this was a weak effort.
